  • Takin’ It to the Streets

    Are we still an Army with a passion to reach the lost for Christ? November 17, 2017 by Colonel Lee Graves
    Filed Under:
    Opinion & Critical Thought
    God still calls The Salvation Army to be a prophetic voice in an increasingly lost and wayward world, with Scripture in one hand, obedience in the other—living and being the Army God intended.
  • The Starfish

    Making a difference—one life at a time. November 14, 2017 by Lt-Colonel Wanda Vincent

    Opinion & Critical Thought
    Allow me to paraphrase an old folktale. Thousands of starfish have washed onto a beach, where many of them will die. A young boy gently tosses one back into the water, then another and another. An onlooker asks, “Why are you bothering? You can’t save them all. You’re wasting your time. How can this make any significant difference?” The boy looks at the starfish in his hand, smiles, and says, “It makes a difference to this one.”

    Opinion & Critical Thought
    We arrived in Niagara Falls, Ont., to begin our first year of ministry as a family 443 days ago. It’s hard to articulate how many emotions and discoveries that number represents. We had no idea what life was going to look like. As Salvation Army officers, we have the freedom to grow together in ministry—to invest in our marriage and our children.

    Why I’m filled with hope in a world of injustice and suffering. November 7, 2017 by Major Danielle Strickland

    Opinion & Critical Thought
    I’m pregnant with hope right now. Which is weird. Because, well, things aren’t so good on a global scale. On the way to a conference recently, I had a frank conversation with my Uber driver. She’s not so hopeful. She talked about the horror of the shooting in Las Vegas and the hopelessness she felt about the American political system and the results of global warming on the world, and lamented the fact that she chose to bring children into this god-forsaken place. But all the time she was sharing, as I listened to her pain, what I felt was hope. Which is weird. Why am I feeling hope at a time that seems so perilous and hopeless? And that’s when it hit me.

  • Past Meets Present

    Returning to my first appointment taught me the importance of community engagement. September 15, 2017 by Lt-Colonel Jim Champ

    Opinion & Critical Thought
    Among the lessons we learned in the early years of officership was the importance of volunteers and community engagement in the mission of the Army. Not only did it impact our lives, but it exponentially increased the capacity of the corps to make a difference.
